Morning Routine

Trying to lock down a morning routine has been really hard. I would say, borderline impossible for me. But I keep hearing about all of the benefits having consistency in the morning. So I'm going to keep trying to stick to a routine in the morning.

After reading this, I'd love to hear what you do in the morning. Share with me on twitter at @icco or by email at nat@natwelch.com.

Since 2016 started, I've been trying to have this routine:

  • 0645: Alarm goes off, get out of bed. No laptop time.
  • 0645 - 0730: Stretch, bathroom, drink a glass of water.
  • 0730 - 0830: Make breakfast, read news.
  • 0830 - 0930: Shower, get dressed, pack backpack.
  • 0930: Go to work.

If I'm lucky, I'll run into this great musician on the train platform:

Dancing in the morning

And maybe some day I'll put a run somewhere in that timeline.

I'm trying to "get my shit together" as they say. I have no idea how to actually do that, but here is a list of things I am trying:

I'm always looking for easier ways to deploy all of my stuff to my own server. I'm forking dokku to see if I can get a version that supports multiple sites on a single GCE instance.

This is pretty insane. I wonder if I'd ever actually use it though. Intelligent zooming seems pretty useless on a laptop, but maybe it will be good for mobile.

I use vim a lot, and I use it even more now since my work uses it as well. One thing my boss really loves, and I kinda hate, is an 80 character line limit. I used to just commit style breaking code, but now I can have vim yell at me when lines are too long, thanks to this useful post over at Stack Overflow.
